TV actors want their names to be included in the credits of the show




Actor Shashank Vyas has recently raised the issue of how actors’ names should be included in the credits of their shows. This is what other TV actors need to say about this.



Krishna Bhardwaj

I have no issues with my name not part of the credentials. We live in the internet world where every fact and figure are available. We are actors and we always are seen on screen. Credentials require the names of people working off the screen like directors, editors, cameramen, setting, makeup, spot and so on. It’s them who need more credits than us actors. So, I don’t feel it’s important to have actors’ names in the credits. People can find out actors’ names on the internet.

Actors are a very important part of any show. We give our 100 per cent work for nearly 12-14 hrs a day. We dedicate ourselves fully to the show we are doing. Our names should definitely be there in the credits. People should not only know us by the characters we play but also our real names. I hope it happens soon.

Name and fame is part of our entertainment career. People recognise you because of your characters. But surely everyone wants to be recognised by their name. My shows have been hit and Uttaran ran for many years so people recognise me by name. But like Bollywood, every actor’s name should appear in the credits.

In my opinion, your body of work speaks for oneself. In a world of technology, fans will find you and media will know you. One becomes famous if he or she has to, by default, based on talent. But if names come definitely, it will be good as in films also we see every actors name.


Sahil Khattar 

I feel Shashank Vyas has raised a perfect issue when it comes to naming credits in a TV show, especially at the start of the TV show or at the end of it. It happens in films and digital as well sometimes…in digital, it happens that they give their social media handle, so there is some amount of credit given. But when it comes to TV, I feel it’s like every other day for an employee, as in you give your ideas to your boss and he gives it someone above him. So it’s very important to give credit to everyone who works hard. Many people come here in Mumbai, leaving their homes and finally when they get work and then the credits are not given to them. It feels really bad, so when it comes to giving credit, I feel each and everyone should be given credit for their hard work.


Jason Shah

Shakespeare had said, What’s in a name?’ and we all know this quote because his name was written along with it. Everyone wants to be known by their name, be it a celebrity or a non-celebrity. I surely feel the star cast’s name should be used in the credit titles.


Jasmin Bhasin 

The TV industry is huge with a variety of shows and channels, who don’t want to be recognised by his or her name. Luckily, people know me by my name for the kind of work I have done. My journey is on the right progress path but everyone doesn’t get so many opportunities. We are seen on TV daily, so why is it that our name shouldn’t be put in the credit.


Arjun Bijlani 

I agree with Shashank’s viewpoint. Actors work daily for a daily soap and it is a simple basic acknowledgement of one’s talent and work. In Bollywood also, credits are always mentioned either at the beginning or at the end. The TV industry should also do the same.


Khalid Siddiqui 

When everyone is given credit for their work, I think even actors should get their dues, since everyone is getting their due, right from the sound recordist to the editor, director. Everyone’s name is in the credit list. So, I feel actors should also be given credit. Ideally, the name of the actor should be there. I don’t know why is it not there and I never even tried to ask anyone about it.


No idle play on the set of Ek Bhram Sarvagun Sampanna



Not every set sees across hierarchy gelling off camera. But if you go on the set of Dipti Kalwani’s Ek Bhram Sarvagun Sampanna you will see the cast is engrossed in a game of chess. Actress Tina Philip who is playing the role of Ishani Vyas says,” We have a great team of actors and on and off the camera we are having a great time. If someone comes to our set they can see it during the off period. Parikshit Sahni, Ayub Khan, Zain Imam we all play the game of chess on the set. I share an extremely warm vibe with Parikshit Sahni. He calls me My English Lady off camera. Since my childhood I used to play chess and whenever I used to get some time I used to go to Carter road in Mumbai where one can see the live size chess board in the form of a table. In fact, the cast of Sarvagun Sampanna is extremely creative and positive. There is not a single dull moment on the set.”

Gym; A place to work out or meet new people?



From meetings friends to having affairs and even finding your one true love, the gym has become quite a hotspot for a myriad of activities today. Here is what our TV think about this trend.

Sumit Kaul:

I have always seen the gym as a place to exercise. Its possible others may use it for other purposes, but I personally feel every activity needs an ambience and gym provides a good ambience to work out. My interaction in the gym is mostly with my trainer. I maintain a cordial relationship with everyone else. Having said that, I can imagine that some others may use the gym for networking or making friends. To each his own, but I think it’s a waste of time, money and space if you do anything other than working out at the gym.

Ramman Handa: 

Fitness is something that has become a passion for people nowadays and acting as a profession has fitness as a basic requirement. So, gym business has become very advanced and the infrastructure for the gym involves a very hep environment. Certainly, along with the fitness regime, people do network and modern gyms with good interiors give them a place to chill as well. And there’s no harm in meeting as many people as you can irrespective of the place where you meet them. I workout in my building gym only and certainly I have got to know so many people residing in my building through the gym. Also, this has helped me to expand my business. My WhatsApp has a gym friends group and at times we all party and plan our workouts together.

Asmita Sood:

Although I have heard about such incidents from my friends, I myself don’t entertain any “friendly” advances from anyone in the gym. I barely get 15 days in a month to work out due to my hectic work schedules thus I prefer devoting my energy sincerely to my body and not chit-chatting. I talk only to my trainer and I guess that is enough!


Shubhaavi Choksey:

 I honestly don’t have any views or options about this topic as it is none of my business what someone else wants to do or is doing. It is their life and their prerogative. As for me, I workout alone in my gym due to my timings and before the gym was in our building, I would only go there with my husband.

Bhanujeet Sudan Singh:

For me, a gym is a place where I go to work out and I do that for almost 2 and a half hours. When I workout, I don’t even realise who is next to me, I just need my machines and empty space. I don’t need any company. But I have seen that people start connecting and talking and at times, they come to me and start talking as well, while I am working out, which I find really irritating. I have seen girls and boys meeting and asking each other out at the gym. I don’t think it’s a big thing just as earlier people used to meet at parties and have affairs, now it happens at gyms too.

Nishant Malkani:

Any place of gathering where women and men come together, there’s always wandering eyes and search for the right partner. Everyone in today’s time is in search of the right partner, a gym is a place where a lot of good looking people come together. They are excited and have a lot of adrenaline rushing through them. It’s a place where people meet and if they hit it off, there might be no looking back. But this could happen at any place, be it a club or at a house party. Though, off late people actually, take gym memberships on the basis of the kind of crowd that comes there.


Sahil Anand:

You cannot blame just the gym, networking and meeting people happens everywhere. It can be a workplace or a party anywhere. I don’t network much with people because I know if I will bond, I won’t be able to work out.

Karan Deol pens a poem for his dad Sunny Deol on Father’s Day

On Father’s Day, many celebrities are posting sweet messages for their fathers. Actor Karan Deol who is making his debut with Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas directed by his father Sunny Deol not only shared a sweet throwback picture but also wrote a poem for his dad.

Many people look up at superheroes,
Mine is my dad.

From seeing you push on from your ups and down,
You always managed to turn things around,
Looking at you turned my frown upside down.

A single word won’t do justice to what you mean to me,
But from here on now I’m not that kid anymore I’ve got you’re back indefinitely.
I owe my life to you cause without you I would never have had anything,
My ray of sunshine through everything.
Cause no matter how big the problem you never gave up,
And always came out of it with your head up.

I don’t think there ever will be anyone as tough,
Dad because of you I’m a fighter and I promise you I’ll never give up. #HappyFathersDay @iamsunnydeol

Karan wrote on his Instagram.
